Mardi Gras Earrings!

Happy Fat Tuesday!  I thought some earrings would be a great DIY for some fun today!  I made my first pair out of an old Mardi Gras necklace, and the second pair of earrings is made out of some fun sting.  

The Mardi Gras earrings take only seconds to make!  All you need are hanging earring wire, and a strand of Mardi Gras beads, plus a pair of scissors.  Cut the beads to desired length.  Make sure one end finishes with a small bead.  Now slip the string between the end small bead and the next bead thru the bottom wire earring loop.  The small bead will keep the strand in place.  Now you have a great accessory for the holiday!

I like to wear different earrings at once, and this pair work beautifully together!  Plus these earrings are just as easy to make as the Mardi Gras earrings.  Find some fun string or yarn, and cut it to double in length.  Thread the string thru the bottom loop of the wire earring and tie a knot.  Tie as many strings on as you like!  I was able to fit about four or five on.  

Hope ya'll enjoyed todays DIYs, and Happy Mardi Gras DIYing! ~chris
